Code 52

Welcome to the Code 52 ideas pipeline!

Please feel free to leave an idea for a project or vote on your favorites to be featured on the blog.

If you do adopt a project from this list, please leave a comment and come and let us know at http://jabbr.net/#/rooms/code52 so people can find it to help out.

Even if a project is adopted before it hits the blog we will likely post about it, as it’s likely that the better projects may get cherry picked. Leaving a message and starting a discussion will help us encourage people to join you when we post.

My idea is...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Github Time Tracker

    A web app that integrates with Github to get your issues and then allows you to enter estimate times for each issue as well as take real times from commits.
    This could then generate project reports about how well you're doing things on time.
    The feature list is really endless but that's it for starters.

      • An android app which converts any android device into a game controller

        The app should enable the device to be used as a game controller which can be connected to the computer via bluetooth or the cable.

          • Mindfulness Bell

            Renew http://www.mindfulnessdc.org/mindfulclock.html
            Make it open source, so we can develop it further!

            The sound of the mindfulness bell gives you a signal to take your concentration to the here and now.

            • Portfolios for programmers

              There are already plenty of portfolio sites aimed at graphic designers, photographers, etc.

              How about one that's tailored to developers?

              For example you could have a flip-book of screenshots, where the visitor can mouse-over different parts, and see pop-up descriptions of what feature the developer built.

              (The images and hotspots could be defined in JSON.)

              Right now I can't think of all the other features, but I'm sure there ways to make a profile that are more suited to developers.

              Would be a good resource for devs to link to from their CV, LinkedIn, email footer, etc.

                • Create a CodeKit equivalent for Windows

                  CodeKit is a pretty cool code editor for MacOS and includes features like live browser reloads, automatic image optimization, JSLint, etc.

                  It's not open-source, but we can easily download the trial version and emulate the basic features.

                  • Real-time Twitter visualizations

                    Here's a nice opportunity to flex some Canvas muscle...

                    How about a single-page app that runs in a browser and shows a constant animated stream of Tweets, with a single text-box at the top-right for you to type in a hashtag to filter on.

                    Unlike TweetDeck, MetroTwit, etc. it actually looks up the content of the tweets and incorporates that content into the animation.

                    For example, if someone tweets a link to a webpage containing a video, a segment of that video will fade into the forefront, stay there for a few seconds, then gradually fade into the background, unless…

                    • Create a virtual file system for linux, which is distributed in nature and uses NFS

                      NFS(Network File system) is a good utility, I want to create a vitual drive by writing a wrapper over NFS drives, when you write to this DFS system, it breaks file chunks, and writes all chunks into different NFS drives, simultaneously, another thread maintains replicability over NFS drives

                      • Convert hand-drawn art into digital art using image processing instead of digital drawing tablets

                        Many beginner digital art enthusiasts face the problem of not owning a digital tablet which are quite costly. I plan to make an application which by using either a laptop camera or user attached camera traces the drawing drawn on any white paper on laptop screen realtime making use of image processing.

                        • Version-Controlled Documentation System

                          Not sure if this is worthwhile but looking at the new site for Git, they have a very nice way of displaying all the manual pages for the Git commands: http://git-scm.com/docs/git-config

                          Something like this may be useful as a standalone app as well. Thoughts?

                          The NuGet team has something they use for the NuGet Docs site: https://github.com/NuGet/NuGetDocs/. Perhaps that can used a base to build a standalone app?

                          • OpenTSDB Rails frontend

                            Hi, OpenTsdb is a very popular tool to aggregate and keep cluster information and metrics.
                            Facebook publishes it's own gwt-based frontend:
                            https://github.com/facebook/tsdash but it is very awful.
                            Default and other frontends (Clover, Otus) are not useful in a real applications.

                            So the goal is a visage-like application (https://github.com/auxesis/visage visage works with collectd files) it has clear and friendly interface.

                            • visual studio add in for dependency navigation

                              A visual studio add in that allows the user to create two windows, a "depends on" window and a "depended on by" window (for the want of a better term).

                              As the user is editing/navigating through code the two windows stay in sync to show the upstream and downstream dependencies for the code that the developer is currently looking at.

                              Possibly with shortcut keys to allow the user to say Alt + Right cursor to quickly move to the down stream list or ALt + Left cursor to move to the upstream list.

                              It strikes me that Solution Explorer shows…

                                Hi,

                                A lot of people have a problem when they need to choose a tool where they can draw good-looking charts like ms Visual Studio charts. And in fact frequently, this is one-day task, without needing this software in the future. My idea is - to help them with this tool. WPF features allows to draw great-looking charts easy.

                                  • git heat map generator

                                    Create a source visualiser that shows a heat map of where changes in a file occur.

                                    Basically diff each git revision of a file, the more changes in an area the more "heat" in that area.

                                    If you want to get fancy, show a folder level view of which files get changed the most.

                                    Why? Because it helps tell you which parts of a code base are the most in flux and most likely to need special attention for refactoring and test coverage.

                                        There isn't one yet, so the bar is low! List my tweets and let me post a new one and it's good. Incorporate a plugin system and perhaps some MahGoodness, and... unstoppable!

                                        • A cross platform GUI reference application

                                          A cross platform GUI starter application that demos basic widgets like tree menus, buttons, drop menus etc. There is a lot of time wasted in examing the different available options (QT, WXWidgets etc ) and putting in the basic infrastructure code in to ensure a desktop app can work on Windows and MAC and still stay beautiful and functional. Would be great to have a reference app to start from that uses one of the popular frameworks. Who knows, might even feature in new apps created via code52 or fair well on a the MAC appstore.
